I got Blueberry Scones, Cinnamon Scones and Chocolate Cookies for a treat, They were wonderful and I shared at work to the delight of staff. You always expect delicious baked goods and I got them.

Food is so fresh that it is unreal in a good sense. Worth the price and the unused food is not wasted as it is given to charity.
